Description
ccgfs is a transport-agnostic filesystem; transport is arranged by helper programs, such as ssh. Common transport modes are "pull" and "push", the latter of which makes it possible to export a filesystem located in a LAN to a DMZ host without defeating the DMZ security model which prohibits connections to the LAN, which the pull model would require.

Most, if not all, networked filesystems use a pull model, where a client sends a mount request to a server. (Because the push model reverses roles, the terms "mount endpoint" and "storage endpoint" will be used to avoid confusion.) So in the pull model, a mount endpoint opens a connection to the storage endpoint. This however is a problem when you want a host in a DMZ network to access data that is located in the inner LAN, because you would need to allow connections from the DMZ to the LAN on the firewall, which is contrary to the principle of a DMZ.

One could move the storage unit into the DMZ itself,
